I haven't really created anything special like poems, songs, or artwork.
Here is one of my best essays that I wrote this year titled "friendship".
During life you can go through tough times, and sometimes you need a friend to comfort and help you through it. Friendship is a thing that every person needs, and without it you have no one to stand up for you and stick with you in times of need. Some friends are just fun to be around and hang out with. Although, there are some friends who are always be there to support you through the good and bad times. The friendship between Mercutio and Romeo is very similar to a lot of friendships, including mine.
Friendship is something to be cherished and should never be taken for granted. As Tybalt approaches, wanting to fight Romeo, Mercutio stands up for him and draws his sword (3.1.75). Mercutio is trying to be a good friend to Romeo by standing up for Romeo and fighting Tybalt himself. Tybalts disrespect towards Romeo and himself angers him, as he feels the need to draw his sword and fight. After Mercutio is stabbed by Tybalt, he cries “Why the devil came you between us? I was hurt under your arm”(3.1.103). Tybalt is outraged that he lost the fight and feels the need to blame someone else for his loss. Tybalt is the type of person who always thinks he has to be the best, and can never admit defeat in something, so he finds excuses for everything he loses; and this time it so happens to be the fight. Tybalt is trying to be a friend to Romeo by
fighting for him, but he is stubborn and blames Romeo for his defeats, and real friends don’t do that.
Happiness can be caused by many things in life, and friendship is one of them. One time I was getting made fun of by this one kid who didn’t like me, and my friend stands up for me as he punches him in the dome. I didn’t ask my friend to do this, but just as a friend he stands up for me. Friends don’t have to be asked to do stuff for a friend, they just know when to do something for a friend when he or she is in need. The kid then fights back and beats up my friend; my friend is hurt, and apologizes for not being able to beat the kid up the kid as he was only trying to help. Some people might blame you for their mistakes, but friends admit defeats and make you feel better. My friend is ashamed he did not beat the kid up and hopes he did not disappoint me. I am not disappointed; as I am very thankful to have a friend that would do all that he did for me.
Mercutio and Romeos friendship may have been a good one for a while, but it didn’t end or turn out well. Mercutio in the end blames Romeo for his misfortunes, and to me that is not something a good friend would do. A good friend sticks with you, supporting you till the end, and that is what my friend has done. During the bad times, a true friend is there to support you and help you through it.
